A long but worth it article on what Covid is really about. NOTE -- what I, this author, and nearly all are saying when we question things about Covid is about the RESPONSE to the Covid virus! Yes, there IS a virus, YES, it is deadly for CERTAIN GROUPS OF PEOPLE, and YES, there are ISOLATED cases of "young healthy people" dying of it!
In my small town, a young boy died from having his tonsils out. Like all such deaths, it is likely under reported (no surgeon wants to admit that this elective surgery "caused" death). So YES, there WILL be a few young healthy people that "die of Covid".
Just as a horrible plane crash does not "prove" that flying is dangerous (just that it isn't perfectly safe), so, a few young healthy people dying of Covid is something that needs to be put in the context of magnitude. Much of what is wrong with Covid reporting and response is that the reporting and response has an agenda that is wildly different than the reporting and response to previous very similar viruses.
I personally believe we humans are quite arrogant to say that we "cause" much of anything -- life and death are in God's hands, pregnancy is a gift, death comes when and how God decrees it will. We ought not be fatalistically careless, and we certainly would be well served to be REALISTIC in the limits of our oh so limited mortal "power"!
The article makes a solid case for the following:
What history will record as the great COVID scam of 2020 is based on 1) a set of untruths and baseless assertions—often outright lies—about the novel coronavirus and its effects; 2) the production and maintenance of physical fear through a near-monopoly of communications to forestall challenges to the U.S.. ruling class, led by the Democratic Party, 3) defaulted opposition on the part of most Republicans, thus confirming their status as the ruling class’s junior partner. No default has been greater than that of America’s Christian churches—supposedly society’s guardians of truth.I have been so blessed to have a pastor that did not fail, in fact, he stood up courageously through the entire trial and continued to provide the blessings of Holy Preaching and Holy Communion.
The bottom line here is "Whom do you believe"? Science? There is no such thing as a "belief in science" -- as Feynman says -- “Science is the belief in the ignorance of experts. When someone says ‘science teaches such and such’, he is using the word incorrectly. Science doesn’t teach it; experience teaches it”
To put it more simply, scientists don't believe experts or much of anything -- their domain is experimentation, EXPERIENCE!
And so is the Christian believe -- the experience of Communion with Christ through his body and blood! For believing and practicing Christians, "To live is Christ, and to die is gain"! To put our belief in "science" or "experts" rather than Christ to endanger our eternity!
Trust in the LORD!
